2017 saw significant progress in our campaign to eradicate polio from the world forever. We saw the fewest cases in history caused by the wild polio virus, Only 22 cases were confirmed worldwide in only two countries - Pakistan with 8, and Afghanistan with 14. 2018 will be a critical year for the polio eradication programme, and we will be strengthening efforts to reach all the vulnerable children and to find the places that the polio virus still lurks in the environment.
